Arlington Yupette reported Sunday that Melissa Bondi is having trouble with her federal taxes and had a lien placed against her to the tune of over $19,000.
We contacted Bondi yesterday, and last night, this is what she wrote to us:
Thanks for your message. I was shocked and thoroughly concerned to learn via blog posts about a tax lien apparently filed against me several months ago for the tax years 2005 and 2006. I had no knowledge of this lien, and I believe this is either a misunderstanding between the IRS and me or an error on the part of the IRS. As soon as I learned about this issue, I began to take immediate action. I spent today, both on the phone and in person with IRS personnel, trying to find out as much as possible about this issue and have formally requested copies of tax records IRS has for me and any correspondence the IRS may have sent. I am committed to learning exactly what led to this situation and am working diligently to ensure I am fully in good standing with the IRS.
